Feel my Phyllo up!

I love phyllo... and if you don't know what it is... well lemme help ya out!!
The thing i probably like the most is the fact that it tastes like it's fried... but it's not!!
So yay on non fried ... fried tasting foods!! Now it's can be kind of a process working with phyllo... so don't be discouraged or frustrated... just be patient!

Spanakopita is a Greek style spinach and feta pie wrapped in light and flaky golden brown phyllo dough. The abundance of fresh herbs including dill as what truly makes this pie special.
